You are the Lord that is Your Name, You will never share Your glory with anyone. Thank You Father, we are grateful for whom You Are. Everlasting is Your Name, the King of kings, the Ancient of Days, Alpha and Omega.
Thank You Lord for gift of another day, we do not take for guaranteed, for the One Who giveth life, will also give what to sustain it.
Beloved, how are doing? The Lord will yet surprise you. He give you what is good and you will not lack any good thing. He will drive away devourers from your land and in whatsoever you do, you will prosper. The Lord will ensure all these and bring it to pass. But there is a condition attached to it and that is what we will be considering this day.
Remember what God said in the Hag 1:2, but in v3 God sent His prophet to show them why their harvest was poor. However in v8, God encouraged them to build His temple and He will command His blessing by shaking the heavens and the earth. He will also shake nations and their treasures will come to you and He fill this house (Temple)(you are God’s temple) with glory.
Are you willing to be part of this greater glory as promised us by the Lord? Then be ready to bring in your portion of tithes into His house so that there will have enough meat for His ministers and His work.
I pray for as many as desires to obey this command from God but has no means, the Lord will empower you to be able to do so. Read further:
“Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in mine house, and prove me now herewith, saith the Lord of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it,.” Mal. 3:10
Many read and plead this promise without noticing the condition upon which the blessing is promised. We cannot expect Heaven to be opened or blessing poured out unless we pay our dues unto the Lord our God and to His cause. There would be no lack of funds for holy purposes if all professing Christians paid their fair share.
Many are poor because they rob God. Many churches, also, miss the visitations of the Spirit because they starve their ministers. If there is no temporal meat for God’s servants, we need not wonder if their ministry has but little food in it for our souls. When missions pine for means, and the work of the Lord is hindered by an empty treasury, how can we look for a large amount of soul-prosperity?
Come, come! What have I given of late? Have I been mean to my God? Have I stinted my Saviour? This will never do. Let me give my Lord Jesus His tithe by helping the poor, and aiding His work, and then I shall prove His power to bless me on a large scale.
When we obey God’s injunctions He will fight our battles. God will send His hornets to fight for you. He will defect your enemies and they will know that the hand of the Lord wrought this victory for you.
“And I will send hornets before thee, which shall drive out the Hivite, the Canaanite, and the Hittite, from before thee.” Exod. 23:28
What the hornets were we need not consider. They were God’s own army, which He sent before His people to sting their enemies, and render Israel’s conquest easy. Our God by His own chosen means will fight for His people, and gall their foes, before they come into the actual battle. Often He confounds the adversaries of truth by methods in which reformers themselves have no hand. The air is full of mysterious influences which harass Israel’s foes. We read in the Apocalypse that “the earth helped the woman.
Let us never fear. The stars in their courses fight against the enemies of our souls. Oftentimes when we march to the conflict we find no host to contend with. “The Lord shall fight for you, and ye shall hold your peace.” God’s hornets can do more than our weapons. We could never dream of the victory being won by such means as Jehovah will use. We must obey our marching orders and go forth to the conquest of the nations for Jesus, and we shall find that the Lord has gone before us, and prepared the way; so that in the end we shall joyfully confess, “His own right hand, and his holy arm, have gotten him the victory.”
Victory is mine today, I tell Satan get behind me, victory is mine today.
The Lord will bless the works of our hands and make us fruitful.We shall bring in treasuries into the store house and devourers will be far from us.
Remain blessed in the Lord.
